26th May

Another day, another Bee-eater; today's bird over Top Fields at least went one better than the day before yesterday's individual and deigned to show itself to its finder, even if that was the limit of the viewing opportunities. In what were again lovely conditions to be out birding there were a few other new arrivals in evidence at the Bill, including a trickle of Swifts and hirundines and a single Yellow Wagtail overhead, and 6 Chiffchaffs and 2 each of Wheatear, Willow Warbler and Spotted Flycatcher on the ground.
